Congratulations CJ!

Waltham Abbey Leisure Centre's Swimmer of the year 2022

It's that time again, where we wanted round the year off with some good news stories.  We asked all of our Swimming Teachers once again to nominate those distinctive, very special swimmers who deserved a bit of recognition.

They were asked to identify swimmers on our lesson programmes who have displayed positive attitudes, unyielding determination or, have put in efforts over and above their peers.  They may have overcome personal adversity or achieved something unexpected or challenging. 

CJ Marshall - Waltham Abbey Leisure Centre's Swimmer of the Year 2022
"CJ was nominated last year and narrowly missed out. She suffered with Covid early 2020 and was left suffering asthma. At under 10 she is one of our youngest swimmers to complete all 10 Stages of the learn to swim program.
She has been with us since she was a baby and is a keen swimmer who loves the water and attends every lesson without fail. Her positive can do attitude from a tender age has seen her sail confidently through the stages."


Well done CJ!
